For millennia, artists have depicted Our Blessed Mother wearing blue. Why blue? We’ve heard a dozen reasons. One of our favorites is this: The Ark of the Covenant was covered with “a cloth wholly of blue” (Numbers 4:6). As the Blessed Mother carried within herself the Divine Presence, she herself became “The New Ark of the Covenant” — so it’s fitting that she wear a blue mantle.

The crucifix is lavishly decorated with leaves and flowers. It’s hand-cast of solid bronze.

The three Paters are large beads of white quartz, shaped something like flattened pears. Alongside the Paters are tiny decorative beads of solid bronze.

The beautiful blue stone Aves are sodalite, in a rondelle form, separated by beads of solid brass and matte glass..

The configuration is similar to a Dominican rosary: Moving from the crucifix we encounter first a Pater, then three Aves, then another Pater — and then a decade of Aves.
